About the garden

One of the loveliest gardens in Cornwall – Trewithen Gardens nails the balance between hidden nooks and sweeping countryside views. Trewithen means ‘house of trees’ so it should come as no surprise that Trewithen Gardens is full of wonderfully woody specimens, from the big blousy Magnolias to graceful Acers. In fact, Trewithen Gardens is home to around 20 champion trees, so-called for reaching the greatest height or girth of their species.

As well as these awe-inspiring trees, Trewithen Gardens is full of fabulous flora and fauna, including a spectacular collection of Camellias, which have earned it the accolade of International Camellia society “Garden of Excellence”. Among the 30 acres of woodland gardens is the Cockpit, where climbing Hydrangeas and exotic Tree Ferns jostle for space under the dappled light of the canopy. Visit in spring when the early flowering Magnolias, Rhododendrons and Camellias are in full swing.

After exploring the garden, visitors can enjoy delicious refreshments at the Tea Shed, open until the end of October half term.

What a lovely place to visit! The gardens were beautiful with amazing shrubs. The house tour guide was very friendly and informative. The friendly robin at the cafe was an amazing bonus too! Thoroughly recommended for a gentle afternoons outing.

A hidden gem and well worth a trip. We spent a Sunday afternoon wandering around the varied grounds. The silent garden was wonderful and it is heartening to see their work with red squirrels. The shed cafe does a fantastic cream tea, too!

There is no colour in the garden, maybe the wrong time of year. There are very few signs showing you where you. It's a very dull garden. I have to go again but earlier in the year. The coffee in the cafe was good.
